The 19th century marked the collapse of the Confucian order in East Asia that had been maintained for centuries ahead. Amongst the chaos stirred by the unconstrained force of Western imperialism, Japan alone secured not only its independence but rose to become the new order of the Eastern hemisphere in the early and mid-20th century. This paper examines the process of Westernization as well as the eventual development of imperialist ideologies in Japan from the mid-19th century until the mid-20th century. The aim is to study the role Asia played in the rise of modern Japanese political ideology, from the opening of Japan in 1854 until the rise of Japanese imperialism in the early 20th century.
